Wild Beasts

GBR (Leeds)


Hayden Thorpe and Ben Little formed Wild Beasts in 2004, Originally from Kendal, the small town in the Lake District, they released a first EP and relocated to the nearby Leeds. After the success of this EP, they found themselves a bassist and released two more – Esprit De Corps and All Men. In 2007 they signed for Domino and after the single The Devil's Crayon, they put out a first album in June 2008. They will bring their wonderfully fantastical, glamorous world to Dour Festival for the first time fresh from the huge critical and public acclaim that followed their 2009 album Two Dancers.
